it is amazing how time flies and memories lose their accuracy. A few more 
clarifications and corrections if I may......

The 1987 AHCA Conclave was a joint venture alright but it was joint with the 
Austin Healey Sports and Touring club at Harrisburg Pa. The Oklahoma 
Conclave was at Shangri-La Resort in 1988, blistering hot as I recall.

Turning back the clock to August 1976, that was the summer that the Pacific 
Centre and the Northeast Region brought Donald Healey over as special guest, 
and hosted somewhat of an East Coast and West Coast meet, the N.E. being one 
weekend, the P.C. being the following weekend. However, in between, Donald 
flew to O'Hare and was guest of honour of the AHCA, (at that moment still 
basically a Midwest Regional club). Donald was a guest over night at Walt 
and Jeanette Blanck's home, with a special dinner in Donald's honour on the 
Tuesday evening. The next day, guests from a number of brand new AHCA 
regional chapters sat at a formation meeting in Blanck's home and mapped out 
the Regional Chapter with Delegate representation concept, and the whole 
thing literally took off from there.
This is not third party, because I was there representing the 3 week old 
Southern Ontario chapter of the AHCA.
